    Sesame Granola

    I think I make a small batch of this at least once a week. This one had some shaved coconut in it. The recipe is really versatile, use whatever nuts or seeds, change the toasted sesame oil to another flavored oil, etc.

    This is also a recipe I got from Alice, but I've changed it around so much, it is basically my own special granola at this point.
